Following on from last week’s reflective post, the past 12 months have been a mixture of highs and lows. Understandably, and this goes for the country as a whole, the most recent few months have been incredibly difficult due to COVID-19 and the consequences it has brought with it. The lockdown period was deadly silent for us. It’s been widely reported that architecture and construction have been some of the worst hit, with many practices large and small losing projects and staff.
While the easing of the lockdown has not come without scrutiny, the Government’s decision to do this has much to do with boosting the economy. Fortunately for us, since that has happened, we’ve seen a direct response with a record number of new enquiries as the industry regains confidence. We’re very lucky that some of these have turned into live projects, which we will be announcing soon. On this road to recovery, we look forward to new opportunities to build back better.
In light of all this, some of us will be taking a well-deserved break from our screens, so there’ll be no journal posts for a few weeks! We’re still here though, so do get in touch to discuss your project.
